Large hadron collider News

Particle collisions are yours to see via CERN's Open Science

Geneva - The world is abuzz because CERN has released in Open Science data sharing the first couple dozen terabytes of LHC high-velocity particle collisions such as the ones that brought the Higgs boson into view. Use the data for music, education or raw analysis.

Prof Higgs learns of Nobel Prize win via woman's congratulations

Oslo - Nobel Prize winning Professor Peter Higgs, now famous for being one half in name at least of the Higgs Boson or God particle, had no idea he had won a Nobel prize this week, until a woman congratulated him in the street.

What does the Higgs boson particle sound like?

The answer to the question is, of course, no one knows. However, researchers from the Geant collaboration, who are involved with the Large Hadron Collider, have taken data and turned it into a piano solo.

Evidence of Higgs boson found in U.S. collider data

Batavia - Recently analyzed data from a defunded American particle collider in Batavia, IL shows that the elusive Higgs boson, the smallest theorized particle of matter, may have been found.

Hints of 'God Particle' found by CERN scientists & researchers

Geneva - Originally meant to be built in Waxahachie, Texas, under the nickname of Desertron, Switzerland-France's CERN states it has seen "tantalizing hints" of the elusive Higgs boson, also called the "God particle," in two of their experiments.

Physicist: Large Hadron Collider could be used as time machine

Geneva - Physics of the impossible? Or physics of the future? One physicist believes the world's largest atom smasher, the Large Hadron Collider, could double as a time machine that could allow people to go back in time.

Large Hadron Collider will run in 2012, says CERN

CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research in Geneva, just announced that the LHC will run until the end of 2012, except for a short technical stop at the end of 2011.

Searching for the Theoretical Particle, the Higgs Boson

What gave the universe mass - well it's postulated that the Higgs Boson did, yet it's never been seen and may only exist for less than a second. Billions have been spent on trying to find this particle, but the possibility remains that it doesn't exist.

A Single Connection Downed The Large Hadron Collider

A single bad connection was the cause behind the world's largest atom smasher to be sidelined. The Large Hadron Collider at CERN was shut down just days after it opened with huge fanfare.

The European Large Hadron Collider LHC will be restarted in 2009

The LHC had been shut down after a large helium leak into sector 3-4 of the LHC tunnel. Because the tunnel must be warmed in order to allow a thorough investigation and repairs and must then be cooled again, the LHC will not be restarted before 2009.

The European Large Hadron Collider LHC has been switched off

The largest particle accelerator in the world, the LHC, constructed underground on the Swiss-French border near Geneva has been switched off for at least two months.

The European Large Hadron Collider is back in business

The largest particle accelerator in the world, the LHC, constructed underground on the Swiss-French border near Geneva had been switched off due to a malfunction in the cooling system. It has now been switched on again.

The European Large Hadron Collider has been switched off

The largest particle accelerator in the world, the LHC, constructed underground on the Swiss-French border near Geneva has been switched off for an as of yet unknown period of time.

Hackers Attack Large Hadron Collider

With the equipment at CERN days ahead of schedule with the Large Hadron Collider news has come that a bunch claiming to be from Greece hacked into the facility. This could be a warning about the weaknesses in the infrastructure.

Op-Ed: Still Waiting For The World To End...

Well, Wednesday is just about over. I've been waiting all day, you know, for a black hole to suck up the universe, but I guess today isn't the day earth, or "home" as I like to call it, meets its demise.

Big Success For 'Big Bang' Experiment

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s most powerful “Big Bang Experiment.” Scientists just performed the first LHC exeriment and it went off without a hitch, sending a beam of particles called protons down a 27-kilometer long tunnel.

Op-Ed: Large Hadron Collider could create black hole, destroy world, cause acne

Doomsayers don’t need a lot of encouragement. The idea is to crash a few protons together and compress matter, generating a lot of energy. The theory is that this will create a micro black hole, which will swallow Europe and then the world.

Searching for God: Donate your idle CPU time to the study of particle physics

Next year, CERN's Large Hadron Collider in Geneva will be started up. It will help physicists search for the elusive Higgs boson particle, also known as the God particle. Before then, countless calculations have to be performed. You can help.

The event shows characteristics expected from the decay of the SM Higgs boson to a pair of Z bosons, one of which subsequently decays to a pair of electrons (green lines and green towers) and the other Z decays to a pair of muons (red lines). Event recorded with the CMS detector in 2012.
